I’ve posted this script on the blog before in a joint post, but as I really do love it i thought it deserved it’s own post. With this awesome script you can edit any web page you want live in the browser. You can change text, move images around, re-align components, whatever you want really. Great for web designers who want to quickly show changes in a web page to a client for example.

    Awesome tool! Best tip of the month. Showing all javascript attached.

    Just tried this on google.com. Found out that their logo has the following js-code:

    1 function onload(event) {
    2 window.lol && lol();
    3 }

    lol?! ;)

    “Javascript edit web page directly” would be a great help to me except when I exit the page after making a change, the change does not appear on the site the next time I go to it. I don’t see a way to register the change.

    What am I missing?
